So there was a ransom in the works. Fox News heard whispers about that soon after Bergdahl was released. So did the Free Beacon, from an intel official who speculated that a criminal syndicate like the Haqqani Network would have been much more interested in cash than prisoners.
If you believe BuzzFeed, though, it wasnt the U.S. government that was considering a ransom, it was Bergdahls father. And its unclear if it was a pipe dream or something he might have actually pulled off.
Also, Bergdahls parents reportedly had extraordinary insider access to the militarys hunt for their son, replete with video conferences involving senior commanders and White House and State Department officials. Hard to believe Bergdahls father wouldnt have mentioned the ransom option to his government liaisons at any point, especially given the potential risk to his son from any miscommunications.
